Young Jeezy Arrested: Rapper Allegedly Assaults 'Punk Kid' Son

Rapper Young Jeezy was charged with terroristic threats, false imprisonment and battery after he turned himself into Fulton County sheriff's officials in Georgia on Friday, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.com.

The charges stem from a September 2012 incident in which the 36-year-old, born Jay Wayne Jenkins, allegedly assaulted his 17-year-old son, Jadarius, during a fight inside the rapper's home.

Young Jeezy has since been released on $45,000 bail and is disputing the charges against him.

According to sources close to the situation, the father and son got into a "nuclear argument," however they say it did not turn violent, TMZ reported.

The fight reportedly began when the rapper accused his son of having become a "punk kid," TMZ writes, and not wanting the 17-year-old to live with him anymore.

Jadarius reportedly responded by confronting his father and getting into his face, to which the rapper said he threw his son to the ground, but never struck, choked, or dragged him.

According to the incident report, Young Jeezy allegedly slammed his son into a glass shower door, then dragged him to a bedroom where he physically assaulted him.

According to Young Jeezy, the altercation was orchestrated by his son's mother, "a loathsome, greedy, gold digging baby mama," as she is apparently described by the rapper to TMZ.

Another source told the celebrity news website that Jadarius' mother, Tenesha Dykes, is brainwashing her son against his dad in an attempt to "squeeze every penny she can get from Jeezy," TMZ writes.

The terroristic threat charge stems from Young Jeezy allegedly telling Jadarius, "I will kill you ... I will put a bullet in your head right now," according to the court documents.

According to the rapper, all he said was something to the effect of, "I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it," TMZ noted.

This is not Young Jeezy's first run-in with the law.

In 2006, the Georgia-born rapper was charged with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit after being arrested in connection with a club shootout in Miami Beach, Fla. Two years later, he was arrested for DUI by Atlanta police, the Huffington Post reported.
